Error

(Sport: Baseball)

Definition

When a player misplays the ball, such as a dropped fly ball, throw or ground ball and lengthens the bat for a batter or enables a longer run for a runner. A verdict of error can be given even if the fielder does not actually touch the ball, for example if it goes through their legs.
